India marks colonial massacre centenary, Britain makes no apology

India on Saturday marked the 100th anniversary of the Amritsar massacre, one of the worst atrocities of British colonial rule and one for which London has yet to apologize.

"The events of Jallianwala Bagh 100 years ago today reflect a shameful act in British-Indian history".

Revisiting the event, its causes and aftermath, the nuanced exhibition explores what we remember, how we remember it, and what we have forgotten, in India and the UK, Manchester Museum said in a statement. "Their memory inspires us to work even harder to build an India they would be proud of", Modi said.

Amarinder Singh, the chief minister of Punjab state, were Amritsar is located, said May's words did not go far enough.

Opposition leader Rahul Gandhi, in Amritsar on Saturday, on Twitter called the massacre "a day of infamy that stunned the entire world and changed the course of the Indian freedom struggle".

Bernie Sanders defends Ilhan Omar: She's not antisemitic
But, she added: "It's absolutely abhorrent the comments she continues to make and has made and (Democrats) look the other way". Sanders defended Omar's remarks by attacking Trump in a tweet, writing: " Ilhan Omar is a leader with strength and courage".

A hundred years later Britain has still made no official apology, and Dominic Asquith, the high commissioner, also failed to do so at the Jallianwala Bagh walled garden, where bullet marks are still visible.

He pointed out that former British prime minister David Cameron, during his visit to India earlier, had expressed regret and termed the Jallianwala Bagh tragedy a "deeply shameful scar".

Britain's envoy to India joined scores of politicians and public figures in the northern city of Amritsar yesterday to mark the 100th anniversary of a massacre of unarmed protesters by colonial troops.

May, however, stopped short of offering a formal apology. I have never raised a question on his patriotism.

Chandigarh | Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of playing "dirty politics" after the PM claimed that the Congress leader skipped an official event marking the Jallianwala Bagh massacre's centenary as he was busy in "Congress parivar's bhakti".

Kim Jong Un says 3rd summit with Trump possible on certain condition
In the months since Hanoi, there have been no known follow-up negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang . Trump told Moon: "we're talking about the big deal".

Reacting sharply to PM Modi's attack on him over the Jallianwala Bagh event which was organised by the central government, Singh said the Centre had deliberately chosen to hold a parallel event instead of supporting the initiatives and programmes of the state government.

Asquith also added that the Queen had spoken of the incident as a distressing example of Britain's past history with India.

"My own great grandfather, who was the prime minister for nearly a decade, had referred to this as one of the worst outrages in our whole history", he said.

"This was truly shocking considering that the prime minister is the chairman of the Jallianwala Bagh Trust", Singh said.

There have been widespread calls for a formal apology to mark the 100th anniversary of the massacre this week, with the United Kingdom government earlier indicating that it was "reflecting" on the demand. "I salute the martyrs who sacrificed their lives on this very spot 100 years ago".
